Robin Ridington

Robin Ridington has worked with Dane-zaa people since 1964. He is a professor emeritus in Anthropology from the University of British Columbia. He was fortunate to know the last Dreamer, Charlie Yahey, and many other Dane-zaa who have now gone on the trail to heaven. The recordings and photographs that Robin made in the 1960s form a core part of the Dane-zaa archive. Robin is the author of Trail to Heaven and Little Bit Know Something, as well as many articles on Dane-zaa culture and philosophy.
